Zippel Bay Report 03/09 to 03/12 (With Pic of Gator)

We had two houses - sleeper in the shallows and day house in the deep. We did much better in the shallows. 4 of us brought our limit home of walleyes but were only able to catch 3 keeper saugers. Did the best in the morning on the shallows. Our alarm clock was the rattle reels, once one went off, time to get up and start fishing. There was an average to below average evening bite in the shallows. Day bite in the deep house didn't go too good - we maybe got 10 fish between 4 of us. We caught a total of 52 fish for the trip! It wasn't fast and furious but it was still fun just to be with friends and family.

There was one nice pike caught by a member in our group, the only pike caught matter of fact. Caught it on a tip-up right before dark. Was just getting ready to pull it up when it hit. See the pics below. It came in at right around 40 to 41 inches.

THE POSE!

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
